Lyrics

Laodicea, Laodicea, Laodicea, where are you?
(Buy of me, buy of me, buy of me, oh…)

To the angel of the church in Laodicea, write: 
Thus says the Amen, the true Statement
The Beginning of God’s creation
“I can’t water down your cases
I’m placing the facts flat- face them
I’m well acquainted with your works
Neither cold nor hot.
It makes Me sick
I’ll vomit you out My mouth.
Lukewarm, complacent
I wish you were cold or hot
But you say, ‘I’m rich, have become wealthy
And I have no want.’
But you do not know
Who deceived you?
You’re miserable, wretched too
Poor, naked, blind- the basest kind.
Don’t waste your time, purchase My gold, fire refined
And bright white, righteous clothes,
To cover your jaded, shameful, frightening soul
Also, anoint your eyes to see, yeah.
And to free you from your pride
Till you see your need
As many as I love, I rebuke
Hope to wake you up with uncut truth
Turn around, be made completely new
Zealous, warming up till My love shines through
I’m crying for you, standing at the door
Want to dine with you
Knock, knock, hello? I’m at the door
Outside your church, do you hear My call?
To the overcomer, I’ll show the honor
To sit with Me on My throne
The same way I did with My Father
If you’re hot or cold, you’ll hear My offer
I cannot force you to follow
The lukewarm church says, ‘Meh, don’t bother’
Problem is, I don’t want to let you go
I’m stretching out a hand that you just won’t hold
He who has an ear, let him hear
I’m here, and the Spirit has told you it’s so
Oh, no! I laid My life down to free you
You’re like, ‘So what? I know…’
Heaven doesn’t even attract you
You mustn’t let this cold dark world distract you!
Last call for the one I love, the people judged
When will you budge? I love you”
